6:33 pm
incidents, there are survivors and leaders who still cope with the aftermath and news of the latest tragedy. >> not again. just sick to my stomach and just takes me back to what we felt on april 12, 1999. it's emotionally anyone that was alive during that time or especially columbine just takes us back to that horrific day that we had. >> it really hurts when babies die. and i really hope that this shooting is the turning point. we have the power to prevent violence. we have learned how to accept each other, live with one another. we have to get back to the basics of being human beings. this one just really, really, really hurts. >> i can't put into words how impossible it seems to me that
6:34 pm
this could happen again so suddenly so rapidly. it's disconcerting. again, there's nothing controversy out there that enough information to assimilate that this is one of the things that i'm still upset enough about just hearing about connecticut that i haven't even been able to formulate my words. >> let's now go live to newtown, connecticut, and cbs reporter ines ferre. ines, investigators are still piecing together what happened. >> reporter: they are still piecing together what happened. they are saying that they are having some progress in trying to figure out what the motive is but they still don't have a motive. and it's been a day of mourning here in newtown. a community is trying to pull together as parents and family members grieve for the loss of their loved ones. 12-year-old jocelyn cardenas came from danbury, connecticut it drop off flowers at a memorial for the 26 people killed at sandy hook elementary school. >> even though we didn't know anyone directly just hurt because you never know what's going to happen next. >> reporter: she is one of many grieving for those gunned down in newtown, connecticut friday morning. investigators identified the

6:41 pm
while this happens all too often in oakland, it's the connecticut school massacre that's on a lot of people's minds today. >> i think it puts whole gun violence in a different perspective and basically makes everything real. >> i think now they understand it a much more fundamental profound level that having a gun in your home that is not safely kept could be a gun in the street committing a crime. >> reporter: oakland police say the most dangerous times of the year as far as gun violence, right before christmas and in august so they are planning another gun buyback next summer. >> right here at the bottom, see? right there. >> reporter: the difference between this program and most others, you get cash instead of a gift card. and they only accept working guns. the money is given by a well any -- by a wealthy oakland donor. gang members aren't turning in guns but it's the people who may unwillingly provide them to criminals. >> same citizens were victims of burglaries where these guns are taken from their homes and
6:42 pm
put into the hands of the individuals who are robbing stores who are taking people's lives. >> reporter: in oakland, anne makovec, cbs 5. in san francisco, there was also a long line of people waiting to turn in guns. police worked with community groups to get the word out about the gun buyback program. so many people responded in san francisco that they ran out of money and they had to give out ious. one woman said the connecticut massacre prompted her to turn in her father's guns. >> the recent events have really spurred something that i have been thinking about for a long time. my family's personal history was -- destiny was stolen by guns in their lifetime, my grandfather and my father, my mother's. and i don't want my grandchildren to go through this. this is the easiest statement that i could make was to turn in these guns. >> police say they took in 300
6:43 pm
guns in oakland and 125 in san francisco. they say there were still people in line when the buyback ended. they took names and phone numbers and will contact them. our cbs 5 weather camera look toward the golden gate bridge. if you are heading into the city, we'll tell you when the next batch of rain will arrive. ,, ,,,,,,,, ,,,,,,,,
